Our Work in Bangladesh
Operation Eyesight began partnering with communities in Bangladesh in 2018.
In early 2022, many of our planned program launches and community outreach activities were delayed due to a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in much higher reported cases than expected.
Our teams in Bangladesh took steps to ensure that eye care services could continue to be provided in the community and also worked with our partner hospitals to enhance their infection prevention and control activities. Through these mitigation measures, by spring 2022, we were able to successfully conduct door-to-door screenings in communities in Bangladesh again, as well as encourage patients requiring treatment for eye conditions to visit a vision centre or hospital.
In addition to conducting quality audits at partner facilities, we also established a new Vision Centre in the community.
